We took the train to Manchester and arrived just before noon, easily spotting a group of about 20 furries gathered in the station. We made some brief introductions and headed to the bar that was the base for the meet. I think there were around 50 attendees in total - more than I expected. I put my fursuit on and wandered for a bit, then we met Stuart Otterson, the meet organizer. He was surprised that none of us had ever been to Manchester before, so he kindly offered to give us a tour. The four of us had a good wander around many of the shops in the city centre (me still in fursuit of course). We even met a couple of bronies on the street - one wearing a Rainbow Dash cutie mark patch on his shirt and one wearing a Rarity cap. I was wearing my Fluttershy t-shirt!
We finished the tour of the city just in time for the beginning of the fursuit walk, so I was straight back out on another walk around town! All in all I guess I spent about 3 hours fursuiting around the city, which was lots of fun. The only downside was that due to being in fursuit all the time, I didn't really talk to anyone while I was there. There's another meet at the end of next month, I haven't decided if I'll go there yet, we'll see!
